All thanks to China refusing our trash. Really, can’t thank them enough. Finally our politicians are awake and are proposing changes.

The LCBO (Ontario's liquor store) used to supply compostable bags made out of (corn?) starch. I wonder why they stopped, and nobody seems to be going in that direction.

India has already banned them.
